FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT
God, fill our mouths with songs of praise
God of Elizabeth and Mary:
make our hearts leap with joy,
fill our mouths with songs of praise
and make us ready to welcome the Christ
in our midst;
who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy
One God in glory everlasting. Amen.
First Reading: Romans 16:25-27
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO Luke 1:26-38
And so, we PRAY together AT THE TIME OF COVID-19
AUTHOR OF LIFE,
HEALER OF THE NATIONS;
GRANT US COURAGE TO FACE OUR TRIAL,
GIVE US WISDOM TO FIND RELIEF, GIVE US FAITH TO BE RESPONSIBLE
AND GRANT US YOUR SALVATION
FOR JESUS CHRIST’S SAKE. AMEN
Commission & Benediction
As we prepare to leave
Lord Jesus, give us grace
On earth to love You more,
In Heav’n to see Your face,
And with Your saints adore.
The peace of God, which passes all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God, and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord; and the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be amongst you, and remain with you always.
Let us go in peace to love and serve the Lord,
In the name of Christ. Amen.
